i'm sorry, but what is SR
It means "soft reset," basically where you keep battling a Legendary or special Pokémon (like Type: Null) until it has what you are looking for, typically Shininess, IVs or Hidden Power types.

Zygarde is shiny locked and there is no legal way to obtain it in its shiny form. Soft resetting will be a waste of time. Sorry!

Hope I helped. :)

Collecting all of the Zygarde cells is the biggest side-quest in Sun and Moon.

No, the other legendaries, UBs and Tapus are shiny locked. (except for Tapu Koko, as there will be an event in the future)

A full list of shiny-locked Pokémon can be found here.

Note that not all legendary Pokémon can be obtained shiny when Soft Resetting.
